In the bomber bottlefrom Beertopia. Pours a hazy golden butterscotch color with a huge white head. Strong honey aroma. lemon scent also. The flavor is tart with some pear and big time apples.

Bottle. Slight gusher. Hazy amber beer with a huge off-white head and some floaties. Earthy, spicy, malty aroma - some fruity esters, but more hops and yeast. Earthy spice flavor with rich malt and some lemon/peach fruit. Medium body. LIngering spice/fruit. Fairly dry finish. Very drinkable. Nice complexity.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a hazy straw amber, topped by half an inch or so of foamy white suds. Thick layers of lace stick to the glass. Sweetish wheat in the aroma, a little bit bready, a little bit yeasty.
Nice flavor of sweeter wheat malt, a little candi sugar, bread yeast, and a touch of dry spice. Medium body, gentle but spritzy carbonation. Soft and delightful.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottled 21.6.2005, 0.75l) Slightly hazy golden color (muddy orange with yeast) with a largeish, foamy head. Aroma of sweetish caramel, grainy malt, fruit, and lots of berries. Smoothly fruity with yeast. Grainy-malty, sweetish-caramely berry flavor with a dryish, bitter-hoppy, peppery-spicy finish. Caramely, fruity and acidic with yeast. Medium-bodied, slightly syrupy, foamy-carbonated palate. Easy to drink, and quite nicely balanced between sweetish caramel, and dryish hoppiness. Still quite straightforward and foamy.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle and served in my NB worthy glass; Produced a huge pillow of light foam that cascaded over the rim of my glass supported by a hazy sunset golden hue, of course the lacing was excellent. The nose detects candi sugars, apricot and pear fruit esters, coriander and peppery esters as well with a yeasty house aromatic. The taste starts sweet and fruity with a mild addition of noble continental hop. While there is not a heavy amount of depth it is enjoyable is not cloy sweet. The mouth feel is very good with a carbonation keeps the palate clean even if a bit too much at times, a hint of alcohol is noted as well. I liked this brew the more I drank it.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Large rocky and frothy white head of very fine bubbles in my chimay glass. Excellent carbonation keeps a thin head on the surface for the duration. Sickly sweet yeast and grass aroma. Not very complex. Kind of weak in the spice department. Color is a bright golden orange. Weak flavor. Light on the malts and body. Little bit of yeast and grains. Light fruit (pear) in there also. Finish is warming with a noticable alcohol presence. Not one of the better triples out there. Decent but there are many better. Actually I am starting to like this more as it warms.
